France 24 has unveiled its official ads, promoting the launch of the new network on December 6.

The ads refer to France 24’s new point of view on the news. The French network intends to show more than the “tip of the iceberg” going beyond the news.

Three ads are currently circulating, one looking at Darfur, another one touching on the nuclear questions surrounding the Iranian and North Korean states, and the last one showing the influence of Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Tomorrow, Wednesday 6 December at 8.29 p.m. (Paris time, 7.29 p.m. in the UK and 2.29 p.m. in New York), France 24 will start streaming its live feed from his official website

The launch is expected to start with the words: “Welcome to France 24, the French International news network. Now, the news…”

In its first hours, France 24 will broadcast a short interview with French president Jacques Chirac. Chirac is at the origin of the network, having revived a 20-year-old project in 2003 during the Iraqi crisis at the United Nations.

The interview is supposed to take place at la Concorde, a Parisian square located at the bottom of the Champs-Elysées and a few meters away from the American embassy.

On that night, the network will also show a best-of of what is to come on France 24.

The next day at 8.30 p.m. (still Paris time) France 24 will launch on cable and satellite, reaching an estimated 80 million viewers in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Washington D.C. and New York. France 24 should also be available in hotel rooms across the globe.
